‘China King’ Chinese Cabbage
Chinese cabbage is a vegetable that is appreciated for its elongated leaves, both low in calories and delicious to taste. It can be eaten in salads, vegetable stir-fry and all Asian dishes.
The step of planting young plant is important because it conditions the recovery of your Chinese cabbages.
Chinese cabbage is planted during the summer in a light soil. It is possible to sow the seeds from June to August in deep furrows of 1 cm and spaced 30 cm between the rows. Keep the soil moist. When you see the first leaves appear, you can lighten up by keeping the most vigorous plants every 30 cm or so.
If you buy plants that have already been formed, planting can take place throughout the summer and even until early autumn if your climate allows it. Don’t forget to separate each stem from your pot by spacing 30 cm.
Chinese cabbage has shallow roots which means keeping the soil always fresh to avoid drying out the plants. Water regularly but moderately in fine rain to maintain good humidity.
